Stand Up to Walmart: No Beatings in Supplier Factories

One month ago, my colleagues and I were violently attacked during a peaceful protest outside a garment factory in Tipitapa, Nicaragua. Watch our video and please sign our petition to Walmart.
I worked at the factory making clothes for Walmart and other retailers until I was fired on January 28. Then on March 4 about 30 workers who are trying to improve our jobs and form a union held a peaceful protest outside the factory. We were brutally beaten when the company - SAE-A, a Walmart supplier, paid a mob of more than 300 other workers to attack us, using scissors, metal pipes, and other weapons. My husband's leg was broken in three places.
Please sign our petition to Walmart. Tell it to demand its supplier factories in Nicaragua to reinstate me and the other 15 fired workers and ensure an end to violence at the factory. You can read more about the Worker Rights Consortium's investigation of the factory here.
